Creating custom page sizes | Revu 2017 & below

The steps listed below describe how to add new page sizes for use within Revu, as well as the Bluebeam PDF printer, plugins for Microsoft Outlook and supported CAD programs.

Within Windows, page sizes are called ‘Forms.’

Revu CAD or eXtreme users can find separate instructions for creating new pages sizes for use with our AutoCAD plugin.
  1. Open the Bluebeam Administrator.

    Go to Start > All Programs > Bluebeam Software > Bluebeam Administrator.

    In Windows 10 and 8.1, click or press Start and type Bluebeam Administrator.


    Go to Help > Administrator in Revu.

  2. Click the Printer tab.
  3. Click the Manage Pages button and then click Add.
  4. Type the Form Name, select the Units, type the values for the Page Size.
  5. Click OK to save the changes.
  • The Form must be defined with a portrait orientation. The values will be switched if the values are entered in landscape orientation.
  • Windows stores all pages using inches. Use “MM” or “_MM)” as the last characters in the form name and the Page Manager will always display the units in millimeter.
  • Standard forms like Ledger, Legal, Letter and Tabloid can not be deleted or changed because doing so would alter or delete that form for all printers on the computer.
  • Custom sizes are not supported by the Word and Excel plugins, which have their own predefined sizes.
